    Played plenty of sports in High School, with very few truly great moments, unless getting into an all-out brawl with a private Catholic school during our soccer game counts.

He's 17 dude, 17! And he's being chased down by grown men begging him to come to their school. Odds are that he doesn't make it to the NFL (that's just a percentage play). So which school he picks will have a significant impact on his future based upon the value of an education at that school. He has a lot to determine - What will be my major? Which school is best in that department? Which school gives me the best chance to be employed and improve my family's life? Which head coach do I like better? Which position coach can do the best job of maximizing my potential?

He has to determine all of that (where he will spent 3-5 years of his life) while going to school and playing football. Based on your ideas, we should have just moved on from Kwon, Dixon, Pryor, and so many others whose recruitment went right down to the wire? So, if this is truly how you feel, just ignore recruiting, and don't help your kids with their college choices, or it will drive you and them crazy.

Wait, I thought that he was such a crappy QB, how could he even have ANY highlights?

I love watching him play. I can see the flashes of brilliance and look forward to how he'll continue to improve and develop.

I think the play calling will be dictated by how well our OL blocks

 Nailed it here. While the play calling has not been great in several key spots, it also was limited due to the performance of the Offensive Line. One of the things that actually does concern me is the bewildering play calling and inefficiency in the red zone.

I dont know how you can pass over one loss teams from other power conferences for teams that win their league

And let's hope that none of us find out how either...

The two most recent recruiting classes (2014 and 2015) are the reasons why I think that Butch has zero interest in the UM job.

There's also a crazy, unlikely scenario in which Ole Miss wins out and beats MSU, Auburn beats UGA, then UGA beats Ole Miss. In that case, UGA is conference champ (with two losses), Ole Miss the West champ (with two losses), MSU the runner-up in the west (with 1 loss). Tell me that's not a nightmare scenario for the playoff committee.

I've got a PERFECT solution - decide it on the field! We could have all 120 teams play each other in a round robin THIS way -

Anything which both Colin Cowherd and Clay Travis support must have some fatal flaws. Their campaigning for a Vegas based ranking system alone results in my opposition on some level. Especially since Clay thinks that the only way that college football is really enjoyable is if you wager on it. He literally has stated this repeatedly, that without gambling, he wouldn't care that much about sports. So, yeah, not taking the advice of compulsive gambler and two men who are essentially "shock jocks" more than they are experts or even journalists.

The bad news for Illinois is this - PSU got the Buckeyes' attention and there will be no "looking past" any opponents for the remainder of the season. The Bucks have looked unbeatable at home since the Va. Tech game and I don't expect that to change. They are going to come out angry and take it out on Illinois. I love hearing how focused the coaches and players are. Also, while the coaches say that the CFP Rankings don't matter, trust me, the players think that they do. And they probably do not like the idea of being ranked where they are.
